/// Sci-Fi, Comedy Dominate Fox’s Fall Schedule
The boys are crashing Fox’s Tuesday night comedy block, as Seth MacFarlane’s first live-action comedy, Dads, and the Andy Samberg cop caper Brooklyn Nine-Nine will set the table for the female-friendly franchise New Girl and sophomore series The Mindy Project. Created and written by the people who brought you the feature film Ted and Fox’s Family Guy (MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild), Dads stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as two successful gaming entrepreneurs who have their lives disrupted when their respective fathers (Peter Riegert, Martin Mull) decide to move in with them. Taking over the 8:30 p.m. slot vacated by the canceled Ben and Kate, Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars SNL vet Samberg and Andre Braugher (Last Resort, Men of a Certain Age) in a single-camera comedy about a loose-cannon cop and his by-the-book new boss. B99 is written and produced by Dan Goor and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation). Pairing the two testosterone-fueled newcomers with Liz Meriwether ’s female-skewing comedy is an interesting gambit.
